Vodafone UK launching 4G in Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow later this month

Vodafone has confirmed on its official blog that three new locations will be added to the list of cities supporting 4G here in the UK. Originally launched in London, the mobile operator expanded to Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield in September.

So which cities are having their 4G switched on this month? Check out some dates below:

  • Liverpool - October 17th
  • Glasgow - October 24th

Manchester will follow soon after. The mission is to have 98 percent of the UK covered by 2015. Vodafone also released some figures. The operator notes that more than 100,000 people have signed up to the Red 4G-ready plans. As well as the deals on offer, Vodafone is offering unlimited data for three months, followed by double standard allowances. 

More locations will be launching soon, so be sure to keep an eye out on feeds to see when your town will get 4G.

  • I have never heard of these cities. What state are they in?
  • In the UK
  • I detected a hint of sarcasm...
  • From some of the posts in the Bing apps article its hard to tell now :)
  • Oh they are in Canada. My bad.
  • There state is great.
  • Haha, what state are they in? Call it the 51st state.
  • It feels like Vodafone Central here...
  • Now if 4G coverage was coming to East Midlands Mainline or First Great Western routes I might be interested. I need 4G when I'm mobile! Currently get 2G or no signal when I travel into London, 3G signal has got worse not better.
  • Lol, in Portugal we have full country coverage in 4G for at least 2 years...
  • Didn't know any countries in South America were that far advanced
  • South America? Ahah Well...
  • How is this possible when first LTE services launched in Portugal 1.5 years ago and covered only major cities?
    Unless you refer to HSDPA/HSPA (aka fake-4G) which UK had much earlier.
  • Yes, that was not true. We indeed have almost 3.5G full coverage, but 4G is available.. I'd say maybe at 100 major Portugal cities. Thats a lot for us.. for example I'm surprised that Manchester doesnt have it yet :O
  • 4G is quite recent is Portugal,but the whole country is now covered. Although lets be honest, the Country is not that big...
  • Ireland dragging its heels as usual
  • Any idea when it's coming to Birkenhead?
